Barcelona is jam-packed with events, from explosive street parties and crazy traditions to music festivals drawing huge crowds.

Each barrio has its own festival, featuring parades, concerts, and weird traditions. You’ll feel your heart racing as a small child climbs to the top of a human tower, and sparks will fly as the corre focs (fire dancers) march through the streets, banging drums and setting off fireworks.

Oh, loud noises are your thing? Then you better get your dancing shoes on for Sonar Festival, and join the hoards of techno-heads shuffling their feet to blasting beats. Alternatively, there’s the star-studded lineups of indie extravaganza, Primavera Sound, plus loads of smaller music, food, and arts festivals throughout the year.
